Not that Paula Abdul makes the choice or anything. That choice belongs to the voters in the TV audience. Still... Who will go home during the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars week 4 elimination? Considering the level of dancing last night, it's a tough call. Let's make it here!
Most Likely to Be EliminatedApolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff (score = 34.5)
Even without Karina's tumble and subsequent tears, this dance was a hard sell. It was a pretty good effort from Apolo, but this is the week in which "pretty good" is not good enough.Should Be EliminatedBristol Palin and Mark Ballas
I know they didn't get the lowest score of the night, but I can't for the life of me understand why
they didn't get the lowest score of the night. The dance was super-simplified and wasn't performed with much in the way of flair. Kirstie Alley's lower-scored performance was a lot more fun to watch.Should Be WorriedKirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (score = 30)
With the lowest scores of the night, this couple should be in serious jeopardy. They also had the unfortunate luck to go first. On the other hand, it was a fun dance guaranteed to make Kirstie fans super-happy.Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas (score = 32)
They didn't have the lowest scores of the night and the judges praised them to no end. I suppose it's possible these two could go home, but I doubt it. Not when there are other targets available.Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel (score = 35.5)
The disco is a tricky dance. Sometimes it does not connect with the audience. Although this was a great performance, the combination of Sabrina's bottom-dwelling last week and Bruno's criticism this week could be dangerous.Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke (score = 36)
The dance was seriously cool, but it's style that virtually no one in the ballroom or in the audience knows. Emmitt should pull through, but this is one of his more dangerous weeks.Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani (score = 37)
The dance was fun, but the tricks didn't quite match up with the dancing. Add in Melissa's relatively small fan base, and even a good score might not keep this couple safe.Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy (score = 37.5)
This was different. And sexy. And Kelly has a lot of fans. On the other hand, the audience does not always like different. Or sexy.Probably Safe... For NowGilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd (score = 39.5)
Half a point away from perfect on a difficult dance? Considering the excellent performance of that Bollywood number, Gilles and Peta have every right to stay another week.Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough (score = 39.5)
In what was far and away the best dance of the night, Shawn and Derek showed that they were the couple to beat this season -- dance-wise anyway.
